It’s like telling a man you want to hear from him more often by him giving you a call.
He then says “well this is how I’ve always been and I don’t know how to change that”.
Not as the woman who gives him everything while you receive nothing or not much (so no friends with benefits).
If he can’t learn to show love to you as a friend then he will never do it as your “man”.
Time and time again I get to speak to women who are trying to figure out where they stand in their relationship. Just a situation with a man whose words and actions don’t seem to line up.
He is making excuses and you should embrace that Still let’s say I am wrong and this man has a deeper issue that is blocking his ability to show love with actions.If he is genuine about his issue then the key is him making an effort.If you express to him how you feel in a loving manner and he still doesn’t step up then he is likely playing you.What does he mean he doesn’t know how to change that?
Pick up the damn phone and call your woman sometimes, end of story.
Just please understand how tempting it is for a person to take advantage of this.
